    Great North Carolina based Mystery

    In the manner of Scott Turow, Judy Nichols keeps her stories fresh by having a new protagonist in the same fictional world. In Tree Huggers the amateur sleuth is Kate Dennison, a newly divorced mom re-entering the work force as a reporter for a small struggling newspaper. She balances investigative reporting with motherhood and a newly budding romance. The author combines mystery and danger with a realistic portrait of a woman balancing work and mothering. The characters seemed so real. I really cared what happened to them. As a special treat, it was fun to see Kate use her mommy knowledge to save her own life with the bad guys seem to have her cornered. I couldn't put it down

    Loved This Book!

    I really liked the main character in this book. Kate's not a super sleuth, she's a divorced mom going back to work as a reporter who finds herself caught up in a murder investigation. The author weaves the story of Kate's personal life (her contentious dealings with her ex-husband, her efforst to balance work and family, etc.) and the murder plotline seamlessly. And as a resident of Wilmington, NC. Ms. Nichols really captures the atmosphere of this city by the sea.

    Great Book!!

    Our church reading group selected this book and I really enjoyed it. The author writes about Christian themes and how faith plays a role in the life of the main character, but it's not a heavy-handed altar call.

    This is definitely a "cozy" mystery. There's no graphic violence and while there's a bit of sex, it all happens between chapters. (I usually skip over those parts, anyway). The story moves a long, there's lots of humor, and the characters are well written and believable. I'd recommend this book to any cozy mystery fan.
